Childbirth and Newborn Care Prep Class with In Bloom Births
October 19, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - October 20, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
Join us for a One or Two Day Childbirth + Newborn Care Prep Class that covers the essentials all families need to feel prepared (perhaps even excited?) for this life transition!
Saturday & Sunday, October 19/20
This is a comprehensive curriculum that covers the essentials to prepare for Childbirth, Postpartum Recovery, and the First days and weeks with baby.
Day one will provide you with an understanding of anatomy and physiology of birth, stages of labour, comfort measures + partner support, medical pain relief, and the hours immediately following birth. Day two gives you the knowledge and tools for optimal postpartum recovery, and the basics of newborn care, like feeding, changing, sleep routines, soothing a fussy baby, and more (there’s so much more!)
You’ll find that this class is engaging, interactive, and thorough, leaving both you and your partner confident and prepared. You will gain a greater understanding of the birth process, practice strategies and techniques for comfort and coping during labour, learn about medical pain management options, gain tools to feel empowered and make decisions in labour, and spend time working through your feelings or fears leading up to your big day through to the first weeks.
What’s included: a light breakfast, coffee, tea + water, course manual, and two interactive days of Childbirth + Newborn Care Preparation!
Saturday only: $150/couple
Sunday only: $65/couple
